How goes your week?

Hi everyone,

How is YOUR week going? Good I hope!

I really do not like Spring. Its great in the fact
that it means winter is over and hopefully no more
snow. But honestly, with spring comes allergy season.
Scratchy eyes, coughing, sneezing....not a whole lot
of fun I tell you! Its already hitting here in
Belgium - I woke up the other day after having my
windows open to air the apartment out and my eyes were
swollen shut and gunked over - ugh!

So now starts the frantic spring cleaning. trying to
vacuum up all of the pollen and dust that enters the
apartment. Also being done is the traditional
cleaning of the cupboards and closets. I have already
thrown out 4 large garbage bags of junk and I have
only gone through 3 of the rooms and still have the
dining room area and living room / craft section to do
- eek!!!

The boyfriend says that I need to get rid of some of
my shoes that I am not wearing...my response to that
one was a huge NO! I just might buy an outfit at some
point in the future where I will need those shoes. I
can not just throw them out! I think that the BF has
about 5 pairs to my 50 pairs (not including my US
based shoe collection which he does not know about
ssshhhh!).

I am working on a new crochet pattern - this bag:

I am making it using Anchor Magicline as called for in
a Pink-Red-Purple color way. I've finished 6 of the
16 squares so far....going slow as I only work on this
during slow times while not at home - waiting in
lines, on the tram / bus etc. It fits nicely in the
purse as I only need to bring one skein and hook and
just work on one square at a time.

Okay, that is about it for now. I must get back to
work as lunch time is over!

Happy Wednesday!
